Maintenance & Optimization
The Software Yin and Yang
The evolution of software is characterized by two essential forces: maintenance and optimization. Like yin and yang, these two forces are interdependent. The optimization and the increase in functionalities brings growth and thus ensures the long-term benefit in the company. At the same time, however, it also carries the risk of the disintegration of internal order. To counteract this decay, it requires the second force, preventive care and continuous maintenance. And the maintenance costs for aging IT systems and software in particular increase with each individual year.

UPDATES TAKE TOO LONG
Industry analyst Forrester Research defines eight challenges for companies when it comes to developing custom applications using traditional programming languages, frameworks and middleware.
One of the decisive factors is the time required for updates.
What are the challenges your organization faces in building custom applications using traditional coding with programming languages, frameworks, and middleware
THE PROBLEMS AT A GLANCE
High costs for maintenance and optimization
Updates take too long
Speed is too slow
Existing code is buggy
Knowledge of individual employees is lost on leaving the company
Legal requirements must be met
HOW THESE PROBLEMS CAN BE SOLVED
Low-code platforms simplify application maintenance and development
The Simplifier automatically generates the code fragments through the configuration. Compared to manually written code, this means that uniform quality guidelines can be adhered to, which always ensure uniform code quality. This allows errors to be identified more quickly in the event of maintenance and rectified via the configuration. In addition, change requests can be implemented much faster and more efficiently, since adjustments do not have to be made in the source code of the application, but the corresponding configuration objects can simply be changed or extended. The possibility of reusing existing configuration elements plays a decisive role here.
The Simplifier creates standardization through configuration
The low-code platform Simplifier is not only a technology for pure software development. It is designed to cover the entire life cycle of an application, from application creation and commissioning to global rollout. This of course also includes the constant further development through new business requirements up to comprehensive maintenance.
Agile software development with the Simplifier
The low-code approach of the Simplifier is perfectly suited for agile software development. The time-to-market is shortened, there is a very short training period and lower maintenance costs than with specially written code. Over-the-air updates also allow you to process change requests quickly and flexibly, making application maintenance child’s play.
Using Simplifier makes it easy to deploy, maintain and modify your application with just a few clicks.
